The new line-up back at the office

Melbourne’s Magic1278 have officially launched their new On-Air line up at Melbourne’s Eureka Tower.  New on Mornings, Andrew McLaren was live from the Eureka Skydeck on level 88 as  the Magic breakfast team of John Blackman and Jane Holmes along with Dave Ferguson, Chris Miller and Pat Panetta  welcomed guests for the launch lunch.

“The event was a stunning day held at Melbourne’s highest radio studio. This is a warm welcome back to Andrew as he had previously hosted the Magic Breakfast program throughout the late ‘90s to 2008 before joining 3AW in 2010. Chris has filled in on Magic on many occasions recently and it’s great to have him fill this important shift,” said Macquarie Radio Network Melbourne Operations Director Stephen Beers.

“We look forward to sharing further announcements regarding Magic1278 weekends in the near future.”

The new line up is:

  • Breakfast with John Blackman & Jane Holmes  6am to 9am
  • Breakfast with John Blackman 9am to 10am                                                 
  • Mornings with Andrew McLaren  10am to 2pm                                             
  • Drive with Dave Ferguson  2pm to 7pm                                                        
  • Evenings with Chris Miller  7pm to Midnight

I would like to know why 1278 ceased specialising in 50’s, 60’s and 70’s music and changed to a talk back format? There are a plethra of talk back stations but none that do the wonderful music 1278 used to do. Also, can you advise what 1278’s ratings were prior to the change compared to after the change?
